Ignite Technologies Expands Its Leadership in Enabling Workforce Effectiveness


AUSTIN, Texas — July 7, 2014 — Ignite Technologies, a growing enterprise software company delivering unique solutions to engage, align and empower a company’s workforce, today announced the successful expansion of its offerings through the acquisition of NuView Systems, Inc. NuView is an award-wining provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) and Payroll solutions with specific success in enabling global companies to manage their workers around the world. With the closure of this transaction, Ignite Technologies is initiating its high-touch sales, service and support operations for NuView customers, and begins executing on its vision of creating a next-generation workforce management and engagement platform.

Ignite’s flagship product is a patented enterprise Content Delivery Network solution that overcomes a company’s network and connectivity constraints to allow leaders and trainers to reach all members of the workforce with the highest definition video content in a simple and secure fashion. Ignite’s solution is deployed in organizations ranging from several thousand to several hundred thousand workers. The addition of NuView’s comprehensive HCM suite, which offers a single, all-encompassing view of employees, will allow the expanded Ignite to better meet the ever-changing needs of organizations as they work to get the most from their most precious asset – their human capital.

Ignite CEO Davin Cushman, an enterprise software veteran and former global HR executive, is excited about the future. “Our vision at Ignite is to help companies reach their highest potential performance by enabling new capabilities in and maximizing the engagement of their workers. With this broader vision and with our experience in managing unique solutions to help leaders of global companies communicate with their workforce, we believe we can enhance the experience of each and every NuView customer.”

Outgoing CEO Shafiq Lokhandwala feels that the acquisition will provide a great path forward for NuView customers. “I have thought long and hard about selling NuView, a company I co-founded more than 20 years ago. I believe that Ignite has the vision, resources and commitment that NuView customers will appreciate. It would please me deeply to see investments in NuView continue to bring another 20+ years of success with our software.”

Effective immediately, Ignite will create additional focus on NuView’s existing customers to ensure that each one is achieving their objectives in using NuView products and services. “Starting in month one, NuView customers will be included in our Customer Success program so that we realize with them our corporate goal of 100% Customer Success,” said Cushman. “We’ll be meeting with each and every customer to make sure they are being heard and we are already working on enhanced support and service offerings that NuView customers will love.”
